‘1992’ receives warm welcome


Following the release of Italian crime drama Gomorrah, which saw its UK premiere on Sky Atlantic last May, viewers have been keen to see another series follow in its footsteps. Well, it appears the time has come as fans of the show took to Twitter to share their thoughts on new Italian political series 1992.

The latest Italian drama follows the country’s most turbulent year in the world of politics after several politicians and public figures are accused of tarnishing the prolific Mani Pulite (Clean Hands) investigation. Subsequently, this led to the termination of the First Republican Party as well as the termination of several other Italian parties. This controversial period in Italy resulted in the suicide of various political figures.

A number of viewers and audience members commented on social media after the premiere of its first episode:

“The dark heart of 1990s Italy [is] in excellent new drama #1992!”

“This is the show, guys. It’s great! #1992”

“Strong opening of gripping new Italian drama #1992 on @SkyArts. I spent a lot of 1992 in Italy so it’s fascinating.”

“Italian TV is surpassing itself with series like #RomanzoCriminale #Gomorrah & now #1992 @SkyArts.”

“YESSS! 1992!”

“#1992 Can’t wait for the next one!”

“The new #Gomorrah @1992.”

As well as fans of the crime series genre, print and online publications such as The Guardian referred to the show as “one to watch” whilst The Hollywood Reporter urged viewers to tune in referring to 1992 as transforming “Italian television back in the international spotlight.” The series is promising to be the next drama-fuelled on the British box so be sure you don’t miss out.

1992 continues on Sky Arts 1 next Tuesday at 10pm.
